There is no solution

09 October 2012, 09:42

Nearly every time I write here, someone accuses me of focusing on problems, but not offering solutions to South Africa's problems.

We all know what the solution is: replacing the ANC.

The trouble is, because we're a democracy, and because they continue to buy votes with social grants, empty promises and whatever else, they're going to keep getting voted in.

They've lost control - the Rand is falling against every major currency, strikes are running rampant and violent, and it seems that it's only a matter of time before the one thing we've all been scared of happens.

An uprising of the poor.

There were solutions that could have stopped that.

Education. Genuine job creation. Small business support. Community programs.

Right now though, it's a case of too little. Too late.

In fact, unless I am very much mistaken, I don't think that South Africa can turn around without an armed conflict right now. I think it HAS to happen. Like when you burn fynbos, so that it can grow back stronger.

It's the saddest thing in the world, when you think of the potential we had in 1994, but decades of mismanagement will bring any country to this point.

To those who are still in South Africa, I hope that whatever comes over the next few years does not touch you or your family.

You're braver than me for staying to see it through.
